Athletics health test unchanged after deaths


Official review begun after Polk's collapse

Arizona Athletics officials said they do not see a need to change health standard tests despite two student-athlete deaths in the last 16 months.

The athletics department doesn't think its testing standards are related to the June 8, 2004, death of UA football player McCollins Umeh or the Sept. 26 death of UA women's basketball center Shawntinice Polk, said Kathleen "Rocky" LaRose, senior associate director of athletics. [Read article]

NBA at ua: Suns rising at McKale


Team now owned by UA grad, fast building fan base in Old Pueblo

After a downward trend in scoring culminated in NBA teams averaging only 93.4 points per game in 2003-2004, last season's Phoenix Suns played a new brand of basketball involving numerous fast breaks and 3-pointers being launched whenever possible.

It worked, giving the team a 33-win improvement over the season before while playing an exciting brand of basketball defined succinctly in the team's new marketing slogan: "Making basketball fun again." [Read article]

Times are changing - urgency isn't


My parents have this philosophy of making me learn things for myself, which probably occasionally works. In second grade, they gave me some money for the month, an organizer to keep it in and a mandate to make a budget. Being "let her learn it herself" types, they gave me extra money, waiting to see how I'd use it to help others.

Here's what I did with my surplus: I bought Tootsie Rolls. I'm still absolutely mystified by this purchase. I definitely don't like Tootsie Rolls now, and I can't imagine that I did at the time. But somehow, when I saw that big, bulk 2-pound bag, I just knew I had to have it. [Read article]

Bevelvision: High art for the whole family

The Mat Bevel Institute is the only bit of color you'll find on a nondescript stretch of road on North Stone Avenue, which leads into downtown. A barren enclosed yard fronts a sky-blue brick building with the word "Bevel" painted on its left corner. Except for the color there's really nothing much to the outside of the building.

Yet, the blah, humdrum exterior completely belies what you'll find inside. [Read article]

Season's fashion trends tend toward relaxed, femine looks

Fashion is a temperamental, unexplainable beast. It's quite the phenomenon to think that people will dress in the same style without an explicit agreement.

Take for example the flappers of the '20s or the disco, glam rock era of the '70s or whatever the hell they were thinking in the '80s.

The unspoken group assent to style is inexplicable as far as trying to find its source. All we can do is observe the aftereffects. In regard to this fall fashion season, here are a few of the things that we've all somehow implicitly agreed to. [Read article]
